    My instructions said to use the little hole. I don't. I clamp the end of the thread against the inside edge of the bobbin, wrap firmly a few times, then use the winder. One of the few times I did it the other way, everything got messed up because a tiny amount of thread stuck out. I am pleased with my way, and it's much easier.

    I always thread through the top. wind a little then cut off excess. Just the way I was taught.

    I have been sewing for 40 (eek!!) years and never pulled the thread through the bobbin - until I purchased a new machine and READ the instructions. I said to somebody "my old bobbins didn't have a hole". Then I went back and looked at them. They did.

    Now the good news - NOT putting the thread through that little hole never impacted my sewing one little bit.
